How long until the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim faithful fan base start calling for the firing of manager Mike Scioscia? Admittedly, it’s far too early into the current season to be asking this question reasonably. The problem is that for the last three seasons there have been whispers that have grown into an uproar over whether Scioscia should get a pass for winning the 2002 World Series. The intensity of the whispers may have picked up, but is the case against Scioscia strong enough? Whether or not it’s strong enough is up to the front office but he might not last to the middle of the season. Coming into this year the expectations are higher than they have ever been before under Scioscia or probably any manager in team history.

  • Lets not forget on how meny times he was wrong on stating certain players were not going to work out. Does the name Napoli and Rodeny ring any bells!!

He needs to GO and should have been replaced 2 years ago!! Scioscia
    is the and that ptiching manager are the only TWO reasons we are in last place this season and All I can see is if Artie decides to keep him and that pitching Coach we will not see anything better than 3rd place till 2019. So, Angels Fans its time Buckle up because its going to be a ruff 5 years and I will almost bet that Trout and anyone with any asperations will wont off this team asap. I would!!! Artie will go down in Baseabll history as the Owner who Could have had a WORLD SERIES TEAM!! WAKE UP ARTIE BEFATE!!!!!!!
